NEW MANUFACTURING ALLIANCE CONNECTS LOCAL BUSINESSES TO COVID-19 RESOURCES
Green Bay, WI, May 26, 2020: The NEW Manufacturing Alliance is pleased to announce the release of a new NEWMA COVID-19 Directory. The Directory spotlights Alliance member manufacturers and associated businesses in northeast Wisconsin who provide products and services related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The idea of the Directory originated as members reached out to the Alliance in search of high-demand Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and COVID-19 related business information. As manufacturers retooled to make PPE, others are struggling to find these products. Members are also faced with obstacles of last-minute and increased changes in logistics and legal information. It is a real benefit to the northeast Wisconsin to connect and help these companies collaborate.
Ann Franz, Executive Director of the Alliance stated, “To keep our region thriving, we need to help one another in bringing our supply chain closer to home.” Franz added, “It’s my hope companies will consider these businesses as they purchase PPE and other related products and services.”
The Directory is user-friendly with hyperlinks and free of charge to the public at https://newmfgalliance.org/resources/covid-19-alliance-members-respond/. As an added membership benefit, there is no cost to members advertising in the NEWMA COVID-19 Directory.
The NEW Manufacturing Alliance has over 300 members, mostly manufacturers working with educators, workforce development, chambers of commerce, and state organizations to promote manufacturing in our northeast Wisconsin. The vision of the Alliance is that every northeast Wisconsin manufacturer will find the talent it needs.
